What Are Your Reactions Saying?

I found this quote online and it got me thinking about reactions….

The first step to getting anywhere is deciding you’re no longer willing to stay where you are. Anon

Despite their overuse since the advent of a multitude of social media platforms, I do like a jolly old quote.

Succinct snapshots which capture an essence or a point to be conveyed.

If it gets you thinking, changes your perspective or sparks an idea. Why not?

Some people, though, disagree.

The sight of, in their eyes, cheesy platitudes can make them rather animated and grumpy.

Take, for example, the quote above…

…”The first step to getting anywhere is deciding you’re no longer willing to stay where you are.”

Picture the fallout.

Imagine words like…

“Talk about stating the *&$%+# obvious!”
“Yes, well, it’s not as easy as that, is it?!”
“I hate where I am, I know that already. But what am I supposed to do about it?”

I’m sure you get my point…or maybe this is how you feel too.

Whatever you personal stance, before I carry on, here are a few smiling emojis to lift the mood – 😃😄🙂😊😁

Strong reactions to a quote, negative or positive, are potentially a sign or an indicator.

A spark to be noticed and explored with questions like…

What actions am I going to take to make use of your inspiration?
Why am I unhappy?
Where else would I like to be or do?

Whether you think quotes are pointless platitudes or inspirational insights, next time you have a strong reaction to one, why not dig a bit deeper.

You never know what you are about to discover.
